Leadership Gauntlet – Day 2 – Interdependence

We are more effective when we  work together as a team. As the team grows, we personally benefit. We need to search and locate solutions where everyone is involved. Today,  look for situations where everyone can contribute, and you solicit the opinions of others and therefore, everyone will win.

Your Life Is Not Your Own*

Your life is not your own,

God has entrusted it to you;

To steward and repay the loan

When payments in love are due

To neighbors, friends and family.

Your life is not your own.

In isolation they are prone

You must help those who are alone;

To reside in comfort zones

And not expose their misery.

Your life is not your own,

For children emulate your ways.

They study you and when they’re grown

They will honor and paraphrase

Your life through imitation.

Your life is not your own,

For your ancestors paid the wage;

Through unselfish acts they condoned

Sacrifice for it set the stage

To conquer limitations.

Your life is not your own.

We are connected and our lives

Are braided, embroidered and sewn

Into the fabric that derives

Its’ strength and beauty from above.

Your life is not your own,

For God has placed it in your care;

To polish rock to precious stone

And open shuttered hearts that share,

Communicate and know His love.
